5th Grade Geometry Common Core Math

What do 5th Grade Students Learn About Graphing?

Fifth grade Students learn how to graph points on a coordinate plane and plot points to make a graph in the fifth grade. To do this, you need to understand the x-axis and the y-axis, as well as the ordered pairs (x, y) that show a point on the coordinate plane.

Students also learn about the origin (0,0) and how to plot points on the coordinate plane using positive and negative numbers. They may also learn how to plot points to make simple shapes like lines, triangles, and quadrilaterals.

In 5th grade, students may also learn how to read and understand graphs, such as the scales on the axes, find patterns and trends in the data, and use the graph to make predictions.

What do 5th Grade Students Learn About 2-Dimensional Figures?

5th grade students learn about two-dimensional shapes and their properties in the fifth grade. This could include learning about triangles, quadrilaterals, and other closed, flat shapes.

Students may also learn about these shapes’ properties, such as how many sides and angles they have and what kinds of lines make them up (such as straight or curved). They may also learn how to sort shapes by their properties, like whether they are regular or irregular polygons or whether they are concave or convex.

They also learn to build and draw two-dimensional figures using tools like a straightedge, compass, or protractor. They learn to use these tools to measure and label the sides and angles of these shapes.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.A.1| Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

Standards: 5.G.A.1:

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.A.2| Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.3| Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category.

Standards: 5.G.B.3

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.4| Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.

Standards: 5.G.B.4
